MAUREPAS - State Police believe speed was a factor in a crash where a motorcyclist died Thursday evening.

Irvin W. Lachney, 35, died in the single vehicle wreck on LA Hwy 22 east of LA Hwy 16. Lachney appears to have lost control in a curve, drove into a ditch, became airborne and was ejected from the motorcycle.

Lachney was wearing a helmet, troopers said, but still did not survive the crash.

Impairment is not suspected.
